Freedom space station. Artwork of a Space Shuttle (lower centre) approaching the Freedom space station in Earth orbit. The Freedom space station was a design proposed in the early 1980s by NASA, the US space agency. It was approved in 1984, but cutbacks led to it being delayed. The plans were eventually merged with Russian plans, and in 1993 a new project was announced for what became the International Space Station (ISS). This depiction shows plans from 1985.
